Bathroom piping rerouting, remove and install new vanity, recessed lighting and exhaust vent installation and popcorn ceiling removal. Luther was such an outstanding contractor. Very knowledgable, good pricing and did not raised prices or did less work. Not once I saw him slack, just killing time. He made things work and really gave me confidence that I was getting what I paid for. Without a doubt I will have him on my speed dial for future projects. Those negative reviews on his profile, not even close to the job Luther performs. He is extremely professional and takes pride on his work. HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

We hired DaNa for their odor removal services. Thanks to them, we got a fresh smelling home along with clean walls and floors when the process was over. I appreciated that Noemi, the lady who did the cleaning, was both friendly and thorough, while Francisco was very prompt on all communication. Also, unlike other deodorizing methods I had looked into, the equipment used by DaNa did not require the use of ozone or the evacuation of the premises making it a more eco-friendly solution without the additional hassle.

I needed old carpeting removed from my apartment. I called Julio, and very quickly he came to my apartment to give me a quote. He was able to do the job right away. GREAT JOB! He left the floor clean and without any staples or nails left behind. He was friendly, efficient, and was reasonable with the price. Julio and his helper did a first rate job, and i would recommend him for any job you may need.

IPMC did an outstanding job removing mold from my 1920's House. Being a home with a leaky roof, broken windows, and had been vacant for 20 years, it was no easy job and they exceeded expectations. In short, they were honest from the start with a very low cost, completed the job on schedule, communicated effectively throughout the project (including daily updates), the staff were courteous and friendly, and they went above-and-beyond including alerting me to issues caused by other contractors also working on my house. My wife and I could not be more pleased and our General Contractor was thoroughly impressed.

The service went exactly as planned. Sam was really kind and thorough and able to answer all the questions I had. Doing the mold removal this way was the best option I could've found - it was affordable, quick, and did the job. And I was happy that it was a "green" and safe procedure. Thank you!

I appreciate the testing Air Quality Insights provided before I purchased my first home. Although I knew it was a fixer upper, they came in and tested for lead and mold. They saved me a tremendous amount of expense on mold remediation. As a result I was able to better negotiate the price of the home.

I highly recommend David and Green Home Solutions. I needed an inspection and quote for mold removal. David responded to my thumbtack request within minutes and inspected my home the same day. He walked me through several options for treatment and his estimate was extremely affordable. I look forward to working with Green Home Solutions.

Jenny was very thorough and answered all my questions about my mold assessment. She also let me know what she was actually doing during the assessment. She was also very prompt in following up with the results. I would definitely recommend her services and use New York Pro Inspections again in the future.

These guys are as good as it gets, and I don't say that lightly... they removed the water from my entire basement within 2 days and they were able to dry it out without any mold growth.

Mark Bendit came as scheduled and was thorough in his assessment of the mold and testing for water damage and eased this owner's mind when he kindly explained the process of filing my claim. He even spoke with my insurance agent. I would recommend this company very highly.

I was in need of French drains and a sump pump for my basement and garage. Although Tony charged more for the drains than others, his knowledge as a Civil/Structural Engineer and design for the drains were superior to the others. Also, Tony was able to start work soon; we wouldn't have to wait for weeks if we went with another company. Our house is old and is built on a rocky foundation. Tony was able to make the necessary adjustments in order to implement the drains successfully. Furthermore, he gave us a discount because we also needed to do some mold remediation and asbestos removal as well. I could not find anyone who offers all 3 services. Tony also answered all my questions related to the work in person, via phone, and text. I highly recommend.

our hot water heater broke and flooded into our master bedroom. While we did not have a major mold issue, it was clear that we needed mold remediation experts to resolve the issue. Our search landed us with MasonPro Restoration. They appeared to be a reputable company. Tony and his team came in quickly. He and his team were extremely efficient in their work. In addition to that, they ensured that we were aware and understood every step of the process. We highly recommend them for any mold remediation project. Very professional and effective in what they do. We are extremely happy with their work. Thanks!!!

I needed them to help remove mold in a relative's home and then do restoration -- so I was working with them only by phone. They moved quickly and efficiently, answered all my questions, and did such a good job that my relative's neighbor was moved to call me and say that their work was "fantastic."

Very quick and professional about replying to inquiries. I was given a extremely ridiculous quote from a local guy and that’s when I went looking around and found Elite H Renovations. Within a day and half someone was at my house looking at my property for asbestos removal . Very knowledgeable and gave me a Great quote!! Best thing was he mentioned The asbestos removal would only take a few hours and I could be back home once the air is breathable. I couldn’t believe the difference from the other contractors compared to Elite. I suppose that why they’re named what they are named “Elite” for a reason. Work is going to be done this weekend and I will leave another review once all the work and house is in shape. Can’t wait to have this down.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a mold remediation?

Mold remediation is the process of identifying and removing unhealthy levels of mold that have colonized in a home, office, school or other building. Over time, if untreated, mold can destroy a home by breaking down cellulose-based materials (like wood or ceiling tiles) and causing a slow and messy decay. In the shorter term, a mold infestation can cause severe health problems. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), mold can trigger respiratory problems, nasal and sinus congestion, eye irritation, nose or throat irritation, skin irritations, problems with your nervous system, and aches and pains. Mold inspection and mold remediation are often requested in tandem, although they are two separate services. Nationally, mold inspection costs range from $250 to $300. If mold has been positively identified in your house, either by visual examination or through mold testing, remediation can safely remove it. Properly trained and equipped professionals use specialized equipment (like vacuums and air scrubbers with HEPA filters) to keep mold spores contained while they remove contaminated materials and treat infested areas with antimicrobial spray. A key component to a successful mold remediation after eliminating the mold is ensuring that the water source that caused the mold infestation is also resolved.

How does mold remediation work?

Mold remediation can eliminate mold colonies from your home or business. Mold is a normal part of daily life, but in wet or humid settings mold can quickly colonize and spread by making spores. Whether visible or hidden, untreated mold can cause real health problems and cause extensive (and expensive) damage to your property. Mold remediation involves killing the mold, removing the dead mold and preventing future mold growth. Here is an example of the steps involved in professional mold remediation:

  • Contain work area and apply negative air pressure HEPA air purifiers to prevent cross-contamination. If spores spread, the colonies can easily regrow elsewhere in your home.
  • Mist an EPA-registered antimicrobial to suspend and kill mold spores.
  • Remove affected building surfaces.
  • Bag and dispose of contaminated materials properly.
  • Treat cavities/underlayment and dehumidify.
  • Abrasively remove dead loose mold.
  • Apply EPA-registered protective sealer.
  • Perform clearance testing.

Remove containment materials.

How is a mold test done?

Mold testing can help identify a mold infestation in your home or business. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of test you want done and the number of samples you request. The national average mold inspection cost is $250-$300. The EPA explains that if you have a visible mold problem, in most cases sampling and testing is unnecessary. However, if you have unexplained and potential mold-related illness or can smell mold in your house, mold inspection costs may be a good investment. To avoid unscrupulous testers, the EPA recommends working with a testing agency that adheres to the analytical methods laid out by professional organizations such as the American Industrial Hygiene Association or the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists. Mold inspection costs can vary based on the type of testing done. Prices can also vary, depending on the size of the home, the number of surface areas to be tested, and the extent of the mold infestation. Here are some examples of mold inspection average costs:

  • Swab testing: $200-$300
    • A professional collects a surface swab from a potentially infested area for testing in a lab. Some professionals have concerns about this being the sole test done because it only gathers a small amount of data from a certain area of the house. That’s why it’s frequently done in conjunction with air cell testing.
  • Air cell testing: $250-$350
    • A professional collects an air sample in the home to measure the amount of mold spores in the air. This test is frequently done in conjunction with swab testing to ensure more complete data. Costs are higher for this test because the equipment required of the contractor is more expensive.
  • Both air cell and swab tests provided by the same company: $400-$600.

How do you get rid of mold?

Mold is a naturally occurring and important part of our ecosystem. That said, excessive mold can actually be hazardous to your health. Mold remediation is usually the best strategy to get rid of unhealthy levels of mold in your home or office. If you’re not comfortable working with mold or the area is larger than 10 square feet (3 feet by 3 feet), it is highly recommended to hire a mold remediation professional to resolve the problem. However, if you’re DIY-savvy, don’t have any health risks, and are not freaked out by mold, the EPA gives homeowners the greenlight to clean mold areas that are less than 10 square feet. Here are some EPA-recommended DIY cleaning tips:

  • Fix plumbing leaks and other water problems as soon as possible. Dry all items completely.
  • Scrub mold off hard surfaces with detergent and water, and dry completely.
  • Throw away absorbent or porous materials (like ceiling tiles and carpet) if they become moldy.
  • Avoid exposing yourself or others to mold.
  • Do not paint or caulk moldy surfaces. Clean up the mold and dry the surfaces before painting. Paint applied over moldy surfaces is likely to peel.
  • If you are unsure about how to clean an item (art, fine furniture, etc.) consult a reputable specialist affiliated with a professional organization in their field.

Is mold damage covered by insurance?

Mold damage may or may not be covered by your homeowner's insurance. Mold damage is caused by standing water and excess moisture. Mold damage can be covered by insurance when an item already covered under your homeowners insurance breaks accidentally — for example, if your plumbing suddenly ruptures and water floods your house, the homeowners insurance will cover part or all of the costs for the plumbing repair and any mold remediation costs necessary as a direct result of the water damage.

But you may not be able to get insurance to pay for your mold remediation costs if the damage is a result of your neglect — for example, if you’ve had a slow leak under your bathroom sink for years and have ignored the issue. If the insurer can determine that the mold damage is a result of your negligence, they likely won’t cover mold remediation costs. Also, most homeowners insurance will usually not cover mold remediation costs after a flood unless you have a special insurance rider covering your home in case of a flood. To help prevent mold damage, always keep humidity levels in your house between 30 percent and 60 percent, clean up water spills and damp areas right away, and ensure you have exhaust fans in your kitchen and bathroom.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
